Paramount Gold Nevada appoints Rachel Goldman to its Board of Directors as CEO

– USA, NV –  Paramount Gold Nevada Corp. (NYSE: PZG) today announced that Rachel Goldman, CDI.D, has joined the Company as CEO and a director.

“The appointment of Ms. Goldman completes the formation of an Executive Leadership Team with the combined skills the Company needs to play a larger role in the US gold mining industry,” said Rudi Fronk, Chairman who is also Chairman and CEO of Seabridge Gold Inc., one of Paramount’s largest shareholders.

Paramount has assembled a large base of US gold resources and successfully advanced the highly prospective Grassy Mountain gold project in eastern Oregon through Pre-Feasibility and permitting. In mid-2019, the Company received its Conditional Use Permit from Malheur County to operate the underground mine and more recently the Water Appropriation Permit for the mine and processing facility from the Oregon Water Resource Department. “Our next step is to get bigger. We see the potential to grow resources and reserves at our current projects, and when opportunities present themselves, to selectively consolidate and manage smaller gold projects in the US that do not have our established technical, financial expertise and access to capital. Ms. Goldman’s wealth of experience in capital markets and the resource industry rounds out the team,” noted Fronk.

“In effect, we have created a three-person Executive Leadership Team with the ability to build or acquire a larger presence in our industry. The team includes our President and Chief Operating Officer, Glen Van Treek who leads technical services and is responsible for our permitting, exploration and development programs, and our Chief Financial Officer, Carlo Buffone, who is responsible for finance and compliance,” said Fronk. “This team has the capacity to evaluate, finance and execute projects at a time when gold is moving back into a more central role as a protector of private wealth,” added Fronk.

Ms. Goldman stated: “I am thrilled to be joining the team at Paramount which has done an exceptional job of managing the permitting process for Oregon’s first modern gold mine. I look forward to helping the company get the recognition it deserves for what has been accomplished to date, as well as for the tremendous resource potential we have in Nevada, the world’s best mining jurisdiction.”

Ms. Goldman brings 20 years of experience in institutional sales, most recently as Managing Director of Institutional Equity Sales for a major Canadian brokerage firm. In this role, she has raised hundreds of millions of dollars primarily for small-cap and natural resource issuers. She has developed close working relationships with more than 100 institutional investors, assisting portfolio managers and analysts to invest in resource equities.

“We think Rachel’s understanding of how markets analyze and value resource equities will make an important contribution to forming and executing our corporate strategy,” said Fronk.

Current Update

Since acquiring Grassy in 2016, Paramount has focused a majority of its resources and efforts on advancing the project, a wholly-owned world-class gold deposit in Malheur County in eastern Oregon towards production. The Company has officially submitted its Consolidated Permit Application to the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries to enable the Company to build and operate its proposed, high-grade underground gold mine. The Application is now being reviewed by the DOGAMI and cooperating agencies for completeness. Under Oregon law, the State has 90 days for the completeness review of the Application. When the Application is deemed complete, the State will issue a notice to proceed with the evaluation stage of the process. The State then has 225 days to review the Application, complete environmental and socio-economic assessments, and issue draft permits. Following the issuance of draft permits, the DOGAMI has a maximum of 140 days to complete the public process and issue the final permits.

Paramount has received final approval from Malheur County for all the required county permits including the key Conditional Use Permit. At the State level, Paramount has already received the Water Appropriation Permit and acceptance for 19 of the 23 critical baseline data reports, which were included in the Application.

“We are very confident that our application reflects a proposed mining operation that is environmentally responsible while offering the rural community of Malheur County substantial socio-economic benefits and much needed economic diversification. To date, our mine proposal has received very broad public support within the local community,” said Glen Van Treek, Paramount’s President.

As reported in June, Paramount has initiated a NI 43-101 Feasibility Study for the Grassy Mountain Project. The Feasibility Study is well underway and being led by Ausenco Engineering Canada Inc. with expected completion in mid-2020. The permits and the Feasibility Study will provide the basis for Paramount to secure project financing for mine construction and operation.
